House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, a farmer and longtime legislator, is facing a challenge from the right in the May 17 GOP primary, writes Idaho Press reporter Erin Banks Rusby, from 24-year-old Rachel Hazelip, a Nampa history teacher, who contends the state is moving away from conservatism.

"This is the year that we will determine at our elections on May 17, 2022, whether or not our state returns to its conservative roots, or slides blue because we are a red state but we are under blue management," Hazelip said.

Hazelip identifies her top issues as medical freedom, tax relief and education, including doing away with social-emotional learning in schools; Moyle says his are tax relief, more doctors, and water.
